    Re: Rahm Emanuel wins Chicago mayoral vote

    So what the **** does anyone here actually know about Chicago or Rahm's campaign to justify their opinions, whether that he's a savior or that he's going to raze the city to the ground? Seriously does anyone actually know anything about this city? All I see is a bunch of partisans who've already got their opinion decided but forgot that critical step of getting actual knowledge to back it up. We might as well be talking about the new mayor of the ****ing moon because most people are here for a partisan fight and everything other than party identity and preformed opinions seems completely irrelevant. Just another excuse for a partisan fight and nothing more, the actual subject is entirely meaningless because the same "arguments" and phrases will get dragged out by both sides except for a few name changes.

    For example:
    Yes, it's a new age in Chicago, and new horizon to a new future. They'll be going where no people have gone before. I can see the vision, and the vision is the people; and the people are the vision, and vice versa. The dawning of a new world is at hand, because Rahm is.....well he's Rahm. It's the Age of Aquarius.
    is just the same old crap we've heard before except it was
    Yes, it's a new age in America, and new horizon to a new future. They'll be going where no people have gone before. I can see the vision, and the vision is the people; and the people are the vision, and vice versa. The dawning of a new world is at hand, because Obama is.....well he's Obama. It's the Age of Aquarius.
    Same meaningless BS

    Rahm will do very well for Chicago. This is a great victory for the people of the Windy City.
    is just like
    Obama will do very well for America. This is a great victory for the people of the United States
    Chicago is well and truly ****ed.
    America is well and truly ****ed.
    Blacks voted for him!

    Jews voted for him!

    He had 10,000 people at his rallies! Not 15K!

    He's crooked and rigged the machines himself!

    He hates white people!

    Zorggist Jew!

    -----------------------------

    Just wanted to make sure we got all the stupid right wing responses to this out of the way.
    I dont even have to change that one its been in so many topics before its not new to anyone.
    Well hopefully you all get the idea, its the same partisan crap and message from both sides we've heard forever and always shows itself at its worst when no one actually understands the issue.

    The outcome was a sure as a federal government meeting staffed with $20 dollar whores.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Is anyone really surprised? Why didn't they just suspend the election and save the money? Chicago is hurting financially.

    Well you knew he had it in the bag when he circumvented the residency laws... But what does that say about the Obama administration when internal fighting led to rahm calling it quits as chief of staff?

    He can't possibly be a bigger douche than Daley.

    Excuse us for stating our opinions. We thought this was a board where we were free to do that.

    As for me, I based my statement on how badly he ****ed up in the White House. So badly, that when the ship began sinking, he fled with the rest of the rats to avoid getting pulled under once it finally sinks.

    Re: Rahm Emanuel wins Chicago mayoral vote

    What people don't seem to realize is that there were no real options in this mayoral race. Three of the top contenders were and are part of the Chicago political machine.

    Miguel Del Valle was originally appointed by Daley as City Clerk in 2006 after Laski got charged in the trucks for hire scandal.

    Gery Chico was Daley's chief of staff in the early 90's and has been appointed by Daley to numerous positions in his life.

    And, of course, Rahm Emanuel has connections to Daley.

    The only candidate who could be considered outside of the Daley machine was Braun, and she isn't a really strong candidate by any stretch given her history and statements on the campaign trail.
